Walking past an LCE branch in Bristol yesterday, I was astonished to see not one but two black Pen F`s for sale in the second hand section. Have never seen even one for sale second hand in a shop. Mind you, the shop had not put price tags on them- very lazy. Since mine was tucked safely in my bag, I walked on still surprised.

I checked out LCE, they have a few, which is very annoying, as the prices are not bad, EG Pen F with 14-42mm lens, 699.99.

Even if you are walking in check thier website as they have very variable pricing across thier stores.

When I checked out the A7iii and the Z6 at LCE, I was asked if I might trade in. So, I got some indicative buy prices from them. They were all pretty low ball, but the Pen F was proposed at 250 which raised my eyebrows somewhat (to say the least). The explanation was that they are hard to shift second hand. I personally took that as a bit of bullsh1t, but there you go.

I agree Paul. The best `feel good` camera in my experience. Handle it and love it in my opinion.

So annoying that I have just bought a body only for 599.99. Only 2079 images taken with it, now I need to look for a lens.

You can't go wrong with the 17/1.8, or the Panasonic 15/1.7 or even the Panasonic 20/1.7. The little Panasonic 12-32 is excellent too and very compact.

Of course, for the real Leica experience, get a Voigtlander 17.5mm f0.95!

That's my EM1 MK 2 by the package it came in, to give scale.
Gotta play with it now, or maybe I will just sit and look at it:-)

I trust all's well. I always remember ordering some small photo accessory from a mail-order store and a large package arrived. In my case, they'd sent completely the wrong thing - an electric drill as far as I remember *chr
